Default TC streering servo

I am looking to get a new streering servo for my TC5R... What are some good options that are out there? I currently use my once offroad back up servos ACE1313.. I am trying to avoid a mini, i want something strong and light thats not to expensive... What are good options? Thnx.

Futaba s9551 or the s9550 reliable, low profile, fast, plenty of torque, metal geared end of story...

How about the Orion VDS-1009 servo? Titanium/aluminum gears... It's faster, lighter, torquier and less expensive than the KO 2413 ICS and Futaba 9551.

Also I like the strip that goes around the Orion one... It adds something to the car as silly as it sounds...

Personally, I'm a fan of ACE/Associated servos:

DS1313 and DS1015.

It uses Futaba splines...

They do seem like nice servos that would last long but right for TC? I haven't been at it long but it seems like the 1313 and 1015 are both over powered for touring car and unessesary due to the weight and size of them compared to other popular low profile touring car servos made...

For a TC5 you do not need a high speed servo because of its steering bellcrank. I used airtronics 358 (high torque - .10sec) servo instead of the 357 (high speed .07sec). For me it's just too hard to drive with the high speed servo, and steering is not smooth.
